How To Maintain Pregnancy In The Midst Of Busy Working Mothers?
Hello. I want to consult as well as ask for opinions and solutions. I’m confused, I’m now pregnant with my 3rd child, I’m 23 weeks pregnant. I don’t want this pregnancy because I’m not ready I’m still busy and I have a lot of work to do and this job is both disturbing and risky for my pregnancy, I have to leave the area once a month to get on and off the plane, because there are many tasks that I must and must carry out . So it’s risky for my pregnancy and my condition is prone to exhaustion. I’m asking for opinions and what decisions should I take from my case?
Wa alaikumsalam Fandaria, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before we discuss further, what needs to be emphasized here is that as long as it is not recommended by a doctor on the basis of medical considerations, whatever your problem, abortion is not the answer. Because in addition to having a health risk for yourself, this action is a violation of the law and can be subject to fines or imprisonment.
That way, the real focus of your problem is how to maintain a pregnancy with the obstacles of work and activities that you live. Regarding that, if you can request maternity leave, at least 1.5 months before the time of delivery, then that would be ideal. But if you can't, then you should consult with a gynecologist about your condition.
You should also look for an obstetrician who is the easiest you can reach every day in terms of distance. Or at least find the nearest hospital with a midwife or general practitioner in the area near where you work so that if something untoward happens, you know where to go.
In addition, try in the busiest of your business, you rest by not standing too much, not sitting too much, and not lifting heavy weights. Your other work partners must understand your condition when you are pregnant. The point is that because it is unavoidable, use as many rest opportunities as you can to rest.
In addition, you should also eat lots of nutritious foods such as vegetables and fruit, as well as milk and folic acid supplements to increase endurance. Finally, even if your condition is fine, once in a while you still have to check your pregnancy with a gynecologist so that your fetus remains under control. May you be given strength and your pregnancy and delivery go smoothly.
So, hopefully useful.
